In "Split", Lisa Michaels offers a strikingly textured portrait of her days of communes and road trips, of antiwar protests and rallies - and of what came after, for her parents and for herself - as the radicalism of the 1960s and '70s gave way to conservative times.
This book was a pleasant surprise, as I'd already read a few 'coming-of-age in the hippie era' memoirs and found them ho-hum. This author writes VERY well, and I couldn't put it down easily. In fact, I enjoyed it so much that I looked to see what else she'd written, and, even though the subject matter doesn't interest me much, I ordered that anyway. (I've yet to read it; a book about a true historical event...)
